Super Monkey Ball is a popular platforming franchise published by Sega. It has launched on a number of devices over the years, including Android and iOS smartphones. Unfortunately, none of the games have made their way to Xbox One.
A few days ago, rumors were floating around that a game called "Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD" was coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Given the fact that many regard the Super Monkey Ball games as cult classics, it was surprising to see no mention of Xbox One or PC. Luckily, Sega set the record straight.
Today, the publisher confirmed that, contrary to rumors, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD was coming to Xbox One and Steam alongside Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The announcement was accompanied by a hilarious trailer which showcases some of the challenging balance-based gameplay.
The wait won't be too long because Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD should launch on October 29. It's unclear if the game features Xbox One X enhancements at the moment. Preorders should go live soon, so we should have a better idea of how much it'll cost.
